Any Doubt, Ask Us


The genesis of the manual is attributed to the tremendous response to my lecture notes in surgery. The book has been named as a manual as it is complete, comprehensive, precise and simple. Manipal Manual of Surgery is written, keeping in mind the time constraint and vastness of the subject that the student has to face before an examination.
